2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale news, pictures, specifications, and information

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale – The most extreme Gallardo ever

Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., is presenting at the Volkswagen Group Night in Frankfurt the most extreme Gallardo ever: the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. Automobili Lamborghini is bringing motor racing excitement directly to the road. This new and most extreme top model in the Gallardo lineup is based on the successful race car from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world's fastest single make series.

The car will be produced in a limited run of 150 numbered units. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championship brings professional racers and gentlemen drivers face-to-face in fiercely fought battles on Europe's most challenging racetracks such as Monza, Silverstone and Hockenheim. There are many similarities between the racing and road versions of this super sports car. For example, they both share the same V10 powerplant, which is used in the racing version wîth no modifications. An enormous and manually variable rear spoiler for increased dynamic load Right from first glance, these similarities are even more evident in the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. In fact, it is equipped wîth the
same rear spoiler that offers greater aerodynamic load – reaching in the best aerodynamic condition 3 times the load of the Gallardo LP 560-4 – for increased dynamic stability during tight, high-speed driving. As in the rac cars, the rear spoiler can be varied manually in order to let the driver optimize the car's performance according to the track or road characteristics.

Another element taken directly from the racing version is the removable engine hood wîth quick-release system. Both the spoiler and the hood are of course made of carbon composite material, as are a host of other components on the SuperTrofeo Stradale. Together wîth aluminum, carbon fiber is the basis behind the extremely lightweight construction of Gallardo's new top model.

Lightweight construction through consistent use of carbon fiber The Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale boasts a maximum dry weight of 1340 kilograms. It beats the already lean Gallardo LP 560-4 by 70 kilograms, which gives the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale a stunning power-toweight ratio of 2.35 kilograms per HP for breathtaking performance. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h just 10.4 seconds later. Its forward thrust finally tops out at 320 Km/h.

'Rosso Mars' stands for Italy's racing tradition
The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale sports a brand new 'Rosso Mars' finish that underscores the special connection between ultimate race track performance and Lamborghini's 'Italianness'. The 'Rosso Mars' color symbolizes Italy's traditional racing red, as established at the beginning of last century in motor racing, when the home nations of the competitors were indicated by the color of the paint on the vehicles. Dark green stood for Great Britain, blue was for France, white (and silver later on) represented Germany, white and blu stripes for ÚSA, and red was the color of all race cars from Italy.

Red, black and carbon fiber characterize the exterior
The exterior appearance of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is perfectly accentuated by a matte black finish on the large rear spoiler, the engine hood and the front air intakes, which contrasts wîth the 'Rosso Mars' paint. The forged wheels are painted in high-gloss black, a color that is also
available on the roof as an option. The rocker panel covers, impressive rear
diffuser and outside mirror housings are made of carbon fiber polished to a high gloss, while the brake calipers are accented in red for the first time on a
Lamborghini. It's a perfect match wîth the exterior color and racing concept of
this new super sports car. And besides the historically suggestive 'Rosso Mars',
the new Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is also available upon request in 'Grigio
Telesto' or 'Bianco Monocerus' wîth the roof available in gloss black as an option, as mentioned above.


Minimalist sporty interior
Black and red, the perfect combination of sporty minimalism, are the dominant
shades inside the Super Trofeo Stradale. The most broadly used materials are Alcantara - in 'Rosso Mars' on the underside of the dashboard, the central part
of the seat cushion and the backrest - and extremely lightweight carbon fiber.
Black Alcantara wîth contrasting red top-stitching is used to finish the other
parts of the interior. The §teering wheel is upholstered in black suede and also
features red top-stitching. The door panels, the monocoque racing seats and the center console cover are made of carbon fiber, the construction of which Lamborghini has achieved a world-leading expertise. Discreet sporty accents
are provided by dark chrome visible metal parts.

Úpon request, an interior layout including elements made of carbon fiber, such
as the handbrake frame, the middle of the center console, the lower rim of the
§teering wheel, the decorative frames around the main and secondary instrument panels, the door handles, and the handle for opening the glove box (also available upon request), can be ordered.

Phenomenal powerplant
Like the Super Trofeo competition version, the new Super Trofeo Stradale is based on the Gallardo Superleggera technical approach. The V10 powerplant generates 570 HP, equivalent to 419 kW, which is fully available at 8000 RPM. The maximum torque is equally impressive, wîth the torque curve peaking at 540 Nm at 6500 RPM. The V10's unique firing order delivers the striking sound you hear in motor racing.

Transmission 'race tested' in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championship series
Like the race car, the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale offers the robotized egear
six-speed transmission controlled by §teering wheel paddles as standard equipment. This electronically controlled system shifts through its six gears smoothly and much faster than any human being could. And for maximum acceleration from a standing start, the transmission can be set to the 'Thrust Mode' – a program that allows to reach the best performance possible executing a racing start wîth minimal tire slippage at an initial engine speed of approximately 5000 rpm.

Permanent all-wheel drive for maximum traction in any situation
Every kilometer in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale is packed wîth sheer excitement, in part due to its unrelenting grip in virtually all situations
thanks to all-wheel drive. At the end of the day, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo
is the only single-brand racing series in the world that features all-wheel drive
race cars. The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale is a highly concentrated driving
machine offering a truly stunning driving experience wîth breathtaking cornering speeds and fast, immediate response. Its road manners are always precise, stable and completely safe.

Suspension wîth unmatched precision
The layout of the suspension is directly derived from motor racing, wîth a double aluminum wishbone guiding the wheels. Precise rack-and-pinion §teering gives the driver a very close connection to the road. As is true for the Gallardo Superleggera, the vehicle is specially set up to take full advantage of its dynamic potential. No other model in the Gallardo line is as close to being a true race car. Another great feature is the ultra-lightweight 19-inch wheels, which alone save some 13 kilograms. The lightweight and sturdy wheel bearings and bolts are made from titanium and high performance Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires are fitted.

Brakes wîth unmatched stopping power
Behind the massive wheels are brakes designed for unmatched stopping power, as controlled by the ESP stability control system, which is standard equipment. The front axle is equipped wîth aluminum calipers wîth eight pistons each, and the calipers on the rear axle have four pistons each. The ventilated discs on the front and rear measure 365 and 356 millimeters, respectively. Úpon request, Lamborghini will install a carbon-ceramic brake system. The carbon-ceramic discs measure 380 mm for the front wheels and 356 mm for the rear wheels.

Racing-type options
The optional equipment designed wîth racing in mind includes not only the carbon-fiber ceramic brake discs, but also a tubular interior roll cage, 4-point safety belts and fire extinguisher. On the other hand, those who want comfort can equip their Super Trofeo Stradale wîth a satellite navigation, wîth Bluetooth connection for mobile phones, an anti-theft system, and a lifting system that raises the front axle.
